App Security Questions
Hi guys! I'm new here, this is my first post and I'm happy to be here. So I'm working on an android app where the main driving dynamic is to get the highest score possible and that is stored in a high scores database that everyone can see via internets. So my main question is, how secure should the app be on the player end? Should I do something in code to check to make sure the app isn't manipulated(check for impossible movement, shooting, final score is accurate, etc.), in order to make sure that the high scores are not compromised in some way?
As I said, getting the high score is what will mostly be encouraging players to play the game and spend money on in-app purchases to give the player more abilities and power, giving them an advantage. I may just be paranoid, but I mean I try to be thorough, goes with the line of work I think
Thanks ahead of time for any and all input on the subject.
